Several of you have asked us how you can share free and helpful content on navigating the current times that you're creating for your audiences with all HubSpot users. This thread is a great place to do it.
Feel free to share your resources on topics like remote work, managing remote teams, homeschooling, best practices for specific industries - really, anything relevant to the changing world we're living in.
Thank you for being such a supportive community, as always!

Hi all! Justina from Yieldify here. We work primarily with online retail and online travel businesses and decided to take a look at how coronavirus has affected those industries in particular. If you're curious, check them out:

Thank you, @Eugenia, for creating space to share these! This is a great idea! ❤️
My name is Sarah Casdorph and I work at Aware. This is a little unique, but during this uncertain time we are offering free qualitative insights and analytics for enterprise collaboration platforms like Slack, Microsoft Teams, Workplace from Facebook and Yammer.
Since everyone is remote, it can be a challenge to understand employee engagement of your newly remote workforce. We also know that for many, employers can be a first stop for support and resources when times get tough. Use our tool, Aware Spotlight, to detect changes in your organization’s psychosocial and cultural health, identify pockets in the organization that may need extra support, and follow topics or concerns that are top-of-mind for employees. Things that you can understand include:

Hi HubSpot Community,
S-NET Communications is a remote collaborations and business communications provider, so we have created content on this topic on several occasions. A lot of it is specific to our desktop and mobile apps that connect to a company's business phone system. But probably the most helpful piece in this context would be the advice article below on managing a remote team, by our CEO:
I hope you find it helpful.
Stay healthy and safe!

These training courses cover a wide range of products and services and certain courses include accreditation within our industry.
Many of the optical shops across the country have been closed as they're deemed non-essential medical services so every small bit we can do to help is just our duty.
I hope all my fellow champion users are well too, stay safe! - Nick

Full transparency, learning is what our business is about, and especially at this time, we've pushed a lot of our remote learning options front and center. But I know this isn't a forum to sell in, so I just want to drop some of our free remote learning resources.
I'll leave the links to the ungated Thank You pages for my fellow HubSpot colleagues:

It's Anne from appdome, the industry's first mobile app security company. Our no-code mobile solutions platform adds security, authentication, access, enterprise mobility, mobile threat, analytics and more into any Android and iOS app instantly.
As consumers and remote workers have turned to mobile apps to stay connected, collaborate, purchase, save and more during COVID-19, businesses need to do more to protect the remote worker and mobile consumer. The need for mobile app security has never been more pressing.
We created two landing pages focused on enabling your remote workforce with secure mobile apps and protecting the mobile consumer in COVID-19.

Our primary customer base are IT Pro's who manage incoming service requests so they've seen a huge increase in their volume recently as businesses shift to work-from-home scenarios. They're seeing lots of requests to have VPN's set up and having to send out loaner laptops, monitors, printers, tablets and other types of devices.
On top of the traditional IT requests, they're also seeing a high volume of HR requests as employees send in questions about company policy shifts, paid sick leave requests, benefits changes, etc so a lot of our customers are now rolling out our solutions to help them keep up with that request volume as well.
As a part of our own COVID-19 response program, we've decided to give our solutions away through August 15th so that organizations can hopefully get their arms around this problem.
We aren't in a position to develop a vaccine or produce masks and ventilators but this is one small thing we can from our side to help out. In that respect, we're giving away our solutions for the next 6 months for any organizations that are directly involved in managing the COVID outbreak (i.e. healthcare facilities, public health institutions, manufacturers of medical supplies and devices, etc).
We've got more information on these programs HERE so feel free to take advantage of them or spread the word to your friends, family, and colleagues who may be able to benefit from this.
If I can be a resource or answer questions on other ways we might help out during the crisis, feel free to reach out to me.
Best of luck to all of you and please stay safe!

Thanks for sharing your content! It's great to see what others have created.
Here at eComEngine we have a dedicated COVID-19 resources page with helpful content specifically for Amazon sellers. Supply chain disruptions, delayed shipments, and significant changes in demand have created a tough environment for many sellers, while others are scrambling to keep essential items in stock.
Things are changing quickly in this space. Some recent content we've created includes an article about the Paycheck Protection Program, an announcement about FBA shipping changes, and expert strategies for making the switch to merchant fulfilling orders.

Thanks for giving us a place to share this information! At Pitsco Education our focus is to positively affect learners, and with the distruption in education we want to give teachers and parents resources they can use to help keep their kids engaged at home. So, we put together free resources including activities that can be done with household items, free publications for students to read, inspirational blogs, external resources, and a weekly social media giveaway. We'll continue to add new free resources in the upcoming weeks.
We've also worked at making our newest blogs friendly for home activities, https://blog.pitsco.com/home.
The work everyone has been doing is inspiring. Hang in there and stay safe and healthy!

It has been so insightful to read through all of the tools other Hubspot users are using and offering.
My office has about 60 people who are used to being in the same building everyday. It has been a tough transition for some, but we're finding the fun by using Boost Engagement. There is a free news feed tool where employees can share updates and pictures whenever they want. We're having weekly opportunities for people to share things like celebrating National Dog Day, sharing their favorite throwback photo, or Guess The Employee Spotlight.
If you're looking for a way to feel connected to your coworkers, this is a great way.
